Nestlé Professional, the global leader in out of home branded hot and cold beverage and food solutions, is deploying anti-viral and anti-bacterial self-disinfecting screen protectors for its out of home coffee machines.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers are looking for more reassurance for safety and hygiene when they have a coffee on-the-go, at work or a convenience store.
In an effort to provide solutions adapted to the current sanitary situation, Nestlé Professional teamed up with Nanoveu, a leading technology research company to customize its NanoshieldTM anti-viral and anti-bacterial screen protector for Nestlé Professional's Nescafé and We Proudly Serve Starbucks® coffee machines.
The state-of-the-art self-disinfecting NanoshieldTM film is composed of a PET foil with a special resin layer, containing an active copper component. The films have undergone rigorous scientific testing to prove its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
The self-disinfecting properties of the NanoshieldTM film remain active under various practical use cases, such as high frequency touching and daily cleaning.
Ensuring the safety and quality of its products is a key priority for Nestlé. The company leveraged its R&D expertise in virology and food safety at the Nestlé Institute of Food Safety and Analytical Sciences located in Lausanne, Switzerland to scientifically validate different anti-viral solutions. A scientific study which includes the NanoshieldTM product results, will be published in a peer reviewed journal soon.
The customized NanoshieldTM films are designed to precisely fit the Nescafé touch screen and touch pad coffee machines, which are available around the world. Specific Nanoshields will also be available for We Proudly Serve Starbucks® coffee in selected markets.
